Helena Bonham Carter & Tim Burton Split After 13 Years Together

Helena Bonham Carter and Tim Burton have split after thirteen years together.

The couple “separated amicably earlier this year and have continued to be friends and co-parent their children. We would ask that you respect their privacy and that of their children during this time,” a rep for the 48-year-old actress said (via People).

The couple, who never married, met on the set of his 2001 film Planet of the Apes. They have two children together, Billy, 11, and Nell, 7.

Tim, 56, has frequently cast Helena in his movies. She’s had roles in Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street, Alice in Wonderland and Dark Shadows.

  • 🎄GFW🎄

    I realize that, not technically. But, can we please be reasonable here? The fact is they’ve been together longer than most normal folks who do marry outside that business. It is a partnership of the hearts, pretty much the same thing without legalities.

  • aquarius

    Seriously? I don’t think so. There was no part suitable for Helena in Big Eyes. One has nothing to do with the other. Frankly she’s too good an actress not to do more projects outside the Burton universe which is tired and stale.

  • Jean Morel

    Spoken like a true ignorant.
    Number of Burton films Helena has been in since 2001: 7
    Number of non-Burton films during that same period: 24
